Tlie call for labor organizations to nieet aHd denounce the Debs decision one "week from t-day will mark tlie beginning of a new era of -work m labor circles. Tbe demand tliat Congress Eball define tlie riphte of workhigmen is a step in toe right direction, and should be tbe beginning of a. tenet of efforts to unite wage-earners in defense. There have been too many dissensions i labor ranks to obtain successful results; t ntay divisions or opinion to arrive at tbe desired ends; too mucb politics to reach permanent good, and loo many conflicting interacts to work in harmony for general irorktagnien's 'welfare. These detriments oottid not -well have been avoided. They are tbe outgrowth of conditions -which govern all organizations possessing the rapid growth -which has marked the progress of union labor, and they -will be obviated when wage-earners learn to look to themselves and sot to politics and demagogue leaders for guidance and advice. PoiMies is necessary to Ice -welfare of "WARe-earuors as -well as to the general ptflrtku It develops principles of govern ment and furnishes the issues that divide opposing parties. But in this country un scrupulous men bavc taken advantage of oircnrtances to me politics as a Lait to catch workiiigmen's votes to hoiFt them selves into office, and it is this abufe that bbould be stopped. As long as -work-iogmen neglect their own interests to place pottttoians where they can reach the public parse, the can never be independent nor advance the cause of labor. In recent years, since the ttruggle of labor has been so intense, not one measure has been en acted to give -wage-earners greater protec ts agaiiKt cncroacliing infiuences, nor lias any such existing la-w been enforced. Wage-oamcrs -when united arc strong and influential enough to carry the elec tions of the country, but they must learn to select their own candidates independent of partisan politics or the advice or pro fessional politicians, and when this is done we may look for the beginning of Xtoe end of our labor troubles. TKIHUTE TO DH. L AXE. At the graduation exercises of the "Wash ington High School Thursday evening hun dreds of students formally bade farewell to that institution, everyone bearing the stamp of the individuality of Dr. Frank 21. Lane, the principal. To many the three or four years' association with him as their guide and instructor will have a more valuable effect than so many years of book study. To young men, or rather to boys Just before the threshold of manhood, there can be no more valuable gift than a period of years in the presence of and in intimate association with manly men. Far more valuable and far more essential to a modern education is such on association than any portion of a school curriculum. In this regard the young men of Wash ington have been particularly fortunate. In Br. Lano they have had always an example of straightforward, honest man liness, and in his presence the meanest disposition must have felt a shaping in fluence toward decent and honorable man liness. The present creditable standing of the Washington High School among tlio edu cational Institutions of this country is duo almost solely to the influence exer cised by Dr. Lane. In the past six years be has brought the High School to a state of comparative perfection as a modern educational Instrument, and has made it a model for similar schools in the United States. In that time he has also exer cised an influence over the lives of thou sands of young men that has resulted in giving to "Washington and the far-distant parts of this country not only educated man, but cleanly-spirited, upright Ameri can citizens, at once a credit to "Washing ton and to tho institution and the man responsible for the formation of their char acters. v- s SCHOOL COiI2dl3XCEMENTS. f As a general rule school commencements are looked upon simply as occasions where little and big children, dressed up in their Sunday clotheB, get medals, receive or be Btow flowers, recite .declaim, play and sing, deliver valedlctoricB, listen to addresses tndrladOeu utiicliearts ofartmirjng-parent3 , relations and friends. Another view of them is that to a large portion of the com munity they are a sort of free show to be taken iu Just because it is free und for no other special ronton. . Yet there is a more serious significant at tached to Uiespevcuta. Theyha ve.i distinct educational value, not for the participants in them particularly, but forthe spectators. They are object lessons of Ihe work of the ochools. They present to the public in concrete form some of tlie results attained by the combined efforts of teachers aud pupils, and stimulateimerestlu the achieve ments of the future. In connection Willi the mental training of the risinggeucration notllihg is of more vital importance thautoenlist thesympathy and ititerest of the masses in the general scheme and purpose of education. Not the pnscive interest merely which listlessly aBsents to the desirability of acquiring knowledge, but tlie active earnest concern which appreciates the fact that every properly educated child becomes a factor in the advance of civilization, and that Its influence iu the community is for the good. There maj be exceptions, but they only serve to point the rule. The clecr the people come to the echools the more they concern themselves about the workings of these institutions, tho more will they stimulate the efforts or all connected with them -and aid in the at tainment of better work every year. EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY. Tlie cornice workars' protest against tho assertion of the contractors that the former are themselves responsible lor the secarity of the scaffoldings upon which they work. They have produced proof to the contrary. In all contracts made by them with builders it is the latter who are made to furnish the scaffolding, for, as the cornice workers say, they have no tools for building such a structure. This brings us back to the proposition advanced in The Times a few days ago nnd, indeed, upon one or two previous oc casions that employers ought to be made responsible by proper enactment of law for any harm which, through their carelessness or penurioiisness, conies to their employes. Taking a case like that of the cornice workers, for instance, if a workman were toconic tohisdealh byreason of the insecurity or the scaffolding, his widow or any one dependent upon him for a living ought to have good ground for an action at law against the contractor to re cover suitable damages. In like manner, of course, the workman himself, if he es caped with his life, but were crippled. An employe, no matter what may be the business engaged in, has the right to as sume and to efcpeet that his employer will not put him In jeopardy of life or limb through wanton carelessness. It is this principle that furnishes the strongest ar gument in favor or the claims or the Ford's Theater victims against the government, which was in that case was the employer. It applies with equal force to all other em ployers. The next Congress, it is to be hoped, will see the Justice of passing a bill similar to the one that was pending- in the House Labor Committee at the last session, but -failed to become a law. JUOHE OR LESS-lEHSOL. The twenty-four page illustrated souvenir edition of The Times, planned and executed directly in the interests of the public schools of the District of Columbia and' generally for the good name of the National Capital as a whole, was given to the public "Wednes day last. The Times said little about Its enter prise then. It preferred to wait until suf ficient time had elapsed for its readers to in some measure comprehend the magnitude of the enterprise, its thoroughness, un selfishness aud dignity, its mine of live facts, itB significant presentation of the free educational facilities and possibilities of tbe District, aud, as a corollary, the ad vantages of Washington as a place of resi dence. Four days have passed, and the tribates of praise and appreciation that have come to The Times from educators, business men, citizens generally, and the press of the country are as plentiful and gratifying as could be wished. This project was unselfish, because it was not undertaken for profit, but in pur suance or the policy or The Times to serve the best interests of the city in which it i published. It was dignified because it did not cater to tlie tastes of small politicians or scandal mongers, but rather tended to elevate and glorify a bulwark of our Republican Insti tutions that lias not received its proper measure of treatment from the press in general. It was original because It was a marked as it will be a memorable departure in journalism, to be copied, it is hoped, by every great newspaper in tlie country. It demonstrated the claim of The Times to be oue of the best equipped newspapers in the country; and, above all, it proved beyond doubt tlie power for good of a great Journal that without axes to grind or selfish and disreputable ends to attain, depends for its prosperity solely on honesty of pur pose, enterprise of spirit, fearlessness of action, and a sincere regard for the better life of its constituents. Such a newspaper is The Times and such it will continue to be. It has proved its right to the fullest confidence of the peo ple or this District. That it has that con fidence its circulation books, open to all, will at once show. An honest newspaper for honest people that is The Times.

AHEAD OF ALL ITS RIVALS Everybody in Camp Washington Thought The Times the Best Paper. It,s Ituports Were Fuller and Better Than Any Other and It Got There Earlier. Tho Times was the paper at Camp Wash ington. It caught the hoys and it sold four to one of its competitors. A seaiviitunch brought them down every morning, and they reached camp from ten to thirty minutes ahead of its morning rival. It was eagerly sought after and the boys all bought it before breakfast. Its reports wero fair and unvarnished, and this stood it in good Mead. Hundreds of kind messages have been delivered con cerning its enterprise and the value of Its camp reports. Someor them are ap pended: x Gen. Ordway: "The Times reports of camp proceedings pleased me very much. They vere all that could be desired." Major Campbell: "I shall never forget the enterprise of Tlie Times and its kind treatment of our battalion. The reports were the best in camp." Major Suess: "Couldn't have been bet ter. Tlie Time- hustled them." Major Bartlett: "The most correct re ports I've ever seen coming from camp." Cipt. Peixotto: "Elegant. The Times got here ahead of all." Lieutenant Leeman: "The Times gavo the best report or the camp." Lieutenant DanfortV- "Give me the Tunes. It had the news." Capt. Jenkins: "The finest in camp " Dr. Woodman: "First rate; remarkably correct." Adjutant Smith: "Bett'er than the guard mqtmi I put up. That's saying lots." Capt. Myers: "Undoubtedly the best that came Into the camp." Adjt. Hodgson: "The Times always leads iu National Guard matters. Every one was pleased." Lieut. Jacobs. "Tho best going." Lieut. Jacobson: "Tbe Times' reports tickled me. They were 6imply Immense. Then tlie papers got Into camp in such good time." Sergt. Major Dr. Puy: "Couldn't bavo been better." Capt. Mattii'gly: "Nothing else could have been expected. The Times leads." Lieut. Gibson: "Simply immense." Dr. Weaver. "I'd rather read The Times reports than perform a surgical operation." Lieut. Swigart. "Good. I read it tho first thing each day." Lieut. Bobbins: "I was much pleased." Major Thompson: "Everybody was pleased. Looked for The Times the first thing every morning." Lieut. Harvey: "The boys all liked it and thought it excellent." Capt. Sayers: "The Times has done well. My boys wanted it every morning." Dr. Neely: "First rate. The notes caught the boys. Lots of Times were read." Pror. Schroder: "The best going. Every thing correct. Every member of the band bought Tlie Times the first thing." Capt. Harry Walsh: "Liked it first rate.

John Sessrord, a grocery clerk, was held iu $1,000 for the grand jury in tho police court yesterday on the serious charge of assaulting a sevcntecu-year-old girl. Thu defendant denied the girl's allega tions, but could not bring forward any wit ness to corroborate his statement.

The blcj'cling craze has taken a strong hold on Washington society, and has ex tended into the diplomatic corps. Tlie foreigners have become greatly in terested in the fad of tbe hour, and many of them are already proficient Tidcrs of the shining wheel. The first to lend in this respect was tho Kussian minister, Prince Cantacu zene. who no sooner was able to keep his equilibrium upon the "bike" than he induced his daughter to become accom plished in tbe Baino manner. Every afternoon during last autumn, and almost every lato afternoon during tbe winter, the Prince and Princess Canta cuzene might have been seen spinning over tho miles or smooth asphalt in tho city on their bicycles. At first, of course, when tho bicycles were brought out and placed in front of tho legation tboy created no end of ex citcment in the neighborhood, and tho dwellers along that particular square made a brave showing on the front porti cos and at the windows to watch the mount and triumphal start. Gradually, however, as tho novelty wore' off, the prince and his young daughter, who were debarred from taking any active part in the season's gayetics on account of tho fact that the Russian legation was in mourning for the death of the Czar, were allowed to depart upon their after noon bicycling trip without this attend ant notoriety. CHINESE ATTACHES ENJOY IT For some time there has been an idea current that the Chinese minister had joined the ranks of bicyclers and that, not. con tent with his own achievements iu this line, ho was going to have Madame Yang taught t,p ride, so that his progressive ideas in regard to her couTd be further carried 4ut and she could- accompany him in bis stirring spin3 in and about Washington. This upon investigation appears not to bo tho true state of the case although it is very easy to see how the mistake has arisen. " ' There are several of the members of, the Chinese legation,1 four in fact, with the addition of a (fifth in the person of the minister's little eeven year old son Slesyen, who are T at present proficients in riding tho bicycle.

AND SAKS' CORNER PENNSYLVANIA AVE. t bilities contains no such clause In regard to tho matter. Mr. My Chung, the interpreter and at tache, was the first member of the Chinese legation to gather up his silken skirt at the middle of tbe hem in front, and fasten thm with a big pin at the waistband in front and go whirling away from the as tonished gaze of his friends and associ ates at the legation on a big bicycle fitted out with all the latest improvements in the way of pneumatic tires and such things. Tlie truth is that Mr. Chung was an expert cycler even before coming to Wash ington, having gained his knowledge of the "horseless carriage," as the llrit ishers dub the wheel, during ids residence in London before he was attached to the legation In tills country. LEARNED IT IN LONDON. Mr. II. W. Boo, another attache or the legation, is quite a proficient rider of the bicycle, having, like Mr. Chung, learned the art during his stay in London. His duties conrine him at the legation, ho wever, at the present time to such extent that he has little time for the indulgence of this pleasure. Were the bicycle used as the vehicle of transportation for persons making calls in the fashionable world, it would be im mediately adopted by every member of the legation. Until such time does arrive, how ever, it is not likely that the Minister will be induced to endanger life and limb in learning to ride tbe shining but de lusive wheel. Mr. Sze, attache of legation, and hi3 young brother, Mr. Alfred Sze, both ride the bicycle constantly, and are proficient in the matter of making records of speed. Mr. Alfred Sze is a student at the Wash ington Higb School and rides to and from sehool every day upon his bicycle. As he always wears his national costume his appearance never falls to excite consid erable interest amo'ng the scholars. Each one of the riders named owns his own bicycle and generally goes for a long rido on the outskirts of the city and along the country nnd3 every fine morning, quite early, before the majority of the inhab itants of the city are astir, returning with a fine appetitte for breakfast. PICTURESQUE ORIENTALS. It is a picturesque sight to witness tho start or catch a glimpse of the Orientals, in their gay colored silk garments of every hue and color, mounted upon their bicycles, their close fitting caps ornamented with t the red and blue buttons of rank, and the long, finely-plaited queues flying out be hind with the rapidity of the ride, the fresh morning breeze making the sleeves of their Sfed2' suzir 'RBt'JXiOOR .-for- lflg-b- jJg?tfVJj. vjjfjj .rjL-mm Tor.- jmfso. - 'P3i -fhr. EVERY BLACK EVERY SLUE EVERY PLAIN CHEVIOT, AND SEVENTH outer silk garments stand out taut to their- utmost dimensions. The minister's little Eon, Siesven, also owns a bicycle, b it as yet his rides are con fined to the immediate viciuitv or the legation, where hispnmres is watched with interest by the neighborhood and passers by generally. He is a mite or a child, with the most solemn visage imaginable and, if hewerebt'iitupoiisolvlngthepresenttangled stateofarfairsaudfeelingsexisting between his own native country and Japan, could hardly put on a greater degree of gravity than when he starts out for a ride upon his diminutive bike. Mr. Kurino, the minister from Japan, has so far not become a devotee or the wheel. Perhnps after the diplomatic af fairs now occupying his attention have been satisfactorily terminated he may turn the brunt of his attentions to bicy cle riding. As yet he lias no honors to record iu this respect. AUSTRIAN MINISTER IS AN EXPERT. Baron and Baroness von Hegenmueller, the Austrian minister and wife, who came to Washington at the outset of the past winter, have now become expert bicycle riders. They are large, handsome, and a distinguished-looking couple, and their rides upon the wheel, therefore, excite no end of admiring comment from passers by. When they first decided to learn they did not care to go to the bicycle establishment at which the greater number or societv Iicoplc learned to ride. It was therefore arranged that they should have a teacher sent to their residence, and there, away rrom curious eyes, they were initiated into the mysteries or bicycling. The Misses Pauncofote, daughters of the British ambassador, have added to their accomplishments during the present year by learning to ride upon the bicycle. They are always fond of all out-of-door sports, and arc fine tennis as well as goir players. It is, therefore, not to be wondered at that they should excel In bicycling. BICYCLE CARNIVAL. The Misses de Mendoca, daughters of tho Braziliau minister, have for some months past l-en riding bicycles. They "are now expert in the art, and frequently enjoy a long ride either together or in company with parties of their friends -in society. Generally these rides, when they take place in daylight, are out around the suburbs of the city. At the beginning of the past winter there was considerable talk of a mid-winter carnival for the fashionables who rode the bicycle. The great pageant was to have made the start from Dupont Circle and Connecticut avenue was to have been the chosen parade ground. For some reason that fell through and when the season fairly opened was no more heard or. As a matter or fact, the favorite place with the members of the diplomatic corps, and societygenerally who ridethe bicycle, is the great openspace back of the President's mansion, "Executive driveway," as it is sometimes called now, si nee the old pame or "White Lot" has been abandoned by the fashionables. There the bicyclers congregate in large numbers all during the spring and autumn evenings directly after dark, for as yet the majority of society has no fancy for being stared at in daylight when bicycle riding. - " , COMPAN'VF 3MEJrc in i Pc Get your Cabinet 1'hoto Freo. . jT & 4E$2Sg gjg jJ&Srf &2r-ff3 SERGE, SERGE, WORSTED. j X. asgggjaseggdfegwsgi A Young Jinn's .Nice Tact.
